When I plug in the cat5 my internet is fine on my laptop. However the wifi is extremely slow. Takes about 5 mins just to load email page. However it works fine on my iphone and ipad. BUT the wifi worked fine when I took it to a friends house as well as starbucks. So what is the deal with my wifi? any ideas?

We could run through the usual solutions:
  • Restart the router (unplug, count to 10, replug)
  • Have the Wi-Fi router broadcast from a different channel, preferably to something less crowded. If you can find an app that finds all the wi-fi networks and what channel they're on, that'd be better (Android has one called Wi-Fi Analyzer
  • Make sure the laptop is not in a place with a lot of metal between it and the router. This includes things like large appliances and mirrors
  • Reinstall the Wi-Fi drivers
